[Channel-talklit3to5] Workshop #7 Many Students

No two people are exactly alike. That is why whether we teach in a poor community or one that has excess wealth, we find diversity in our classroom. An outsider looking in on either situation with an open mind will see benefits in each. To live in his or her world, a child must learn to negotiate situations that are part of it. As teachers, we hope that the time spent in our classroom is beneficial. We hope to build upon the child’s strengths and try our best to help him or her overcome difficulties so that by the time formal schooling ends, they are equipped to deal with life. That is, of course, provided everyone else in the child’s life has done his or her job to the best of their ability as well.
